    Help Me Pick Some New Wheels

    I am doing a custom Santa Cruz Bronson Build. I wanted to have one of the shops build it up for me but they are quoting quite a bit higher than me doing it myself. Plus its a bit more fun this way doing it myself.

    Anyway, I need 650b wheelset with 142 rear 15mm front and also XX1 driver compatible.

    I also want to stay on the lower price spectrum of things. I also want some wheels I can order direct off the net and not have to deal with going to the LBS to have them built.

    I would like to do some chinese carbon rims but I dont see anyone building them up with XX1 compatible hubs.

    So far these two look like the best deals to me.

    Hope Pro II EVO Custom 26", 29er & 650b Wheelset Builder - RBikes.com Selling Bikes Since 1910

    ZTR Flow EX 650b Stock Wheelset

    I am leaning towards the Richards Bikes wheels. Anything else out there I should be considering.

    Thanks

    LB rims with AC rear XX1 hub, there's a photo of the rear on my website, built 3 months ago. LB AM 29er if you'd like to see what it looks like.

    I'm waiting for my LB Chinese 27.5 rims to arrive today. I am using I9 Torch Classic
    Hubs, 142x12-XX1 rear, 15mm front. Not exactly cheap, but under a grand easy if I
    build them myself. I built my last set up, 29".
